Grealish impressing with Villa
Jack Grealish is having a sensational 2019/20 campaign.
Aston Villa are fighting a relegation battle, but Grealish has been one of their standout stars throughout the season.
The 24-year-old has scored seven and assisted five in 23 Premier League outings for the Lions this term.
Grealish is also Villa’s captain, and played a key role in getting Villa to the 2020 League Cup final.
And with England’s next set of games edging closer, Grealish is certainly in with a shout of making Gareth Southgate’s next squad.
The Villa man will face a lot of competition for a place in England’s midfield from the likes of James Maddison, Dele Alli and Mason Mount.
But given the form that Grealish has been in of late, it is hard to see Southgate not handing Grealish his senior England debut next month.

Barcelona & Real Madrid eyeing Grealish
With Grealish in such fine form, it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to hear that Manchester United are reportedly prioritising a huge summer bid for him.
But the Red Devils aren’t the only club being linked with a summer move for the Villa standout.
According to the Sun, two European heavyweights have joined Man United in the race for Grealish.
Those outfits are said to be Real Madrid and FC Barcelona.
In terms of a fee for Grealish, the Sun claims that Villa could demand up to £60m for him.
The Sun also mentions Man United’s interest in Grealish, and whilst they claim that the Manchester powerhouse would have no trouble paying any fee Villa demand, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side could be hampered if they are unable to offer the midfielder Champions League football.
